With escalating fights and increasingly frequent amounts of time spent apart, Miley, 20, and Liam, 23, officially called off their year-long engagement on Sept. 16. So what led Miley to agree to officially split? A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that she was fed up with Liam not supporting her in public!
Everywhere Miley Cyrus has performed, interviewed, twerked and appeared lately — has been alone. Without Liam there to support her and her exploding new album, Bangerz, she’s felt increasingly like she’s been putting in all the effort and still standing alone. So what has been the reason that Liam hasn’t been there for her?
Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth: Why It’s Over For Good
“Miley’s all about empowerment and having a strong sexy image, so being with a guy that’s not willing to be there for her publicly and stand by her looks really bad,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
That’s totally understandable — we can only imagine Miley’s heartbreak as the whole world applauds and watches her every move — except for the one person she wants attention and love from the most.
“Miley’s telling everyone it’s over for good this time. She’s been trying for so long to fix things with Liam but it just doesn’t seem like Liam’s willing to fight for her and she doesn’t see why she should be the one putting in all the effort,” the source continues. “They fight so much and it’s been taking a huge toll on her, all the drama and the negativity is not good for her health. And it’s terrible for her career!”
Miley is so clearly a strong young woman, even with the portrayal of herself as broken, vulnerable and crying in her “Wrecking Ball” video. She might have received a ton of criticism for her raunchy and sexed-up VMAs performance, but she hasn’t ever been afraid to show her true self as her career unfolded, evident in her music videos and song lyrics.
She’s unapologetic about who she is, and if Liam — the man who asked if she would spend the rest of her life with him — isn’t fighting for her or supporting her career, then why would she stay with him?
Will Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth Get Back Together?
Miley and Liam are notorious for their on-again-off-again relationship, so is this really the end?
“Her team has been pushing her to end it with him for a long time, they’re thrilled that she finally gave them the go ahead to announce the split. It really seems like Miley and Liam are done for good but you can never say never. Their pattern is to break up and get back together, it’s happened so many times, so you never know if this is really the end,” says the source.
We’ll be on the lookout for any on-again behavior — but until then, we’re truly sad that their relationship had to end like this.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? If you were Miley, would you need Liam’s public support of your career to make you happy? Sound off!
